About Us and BWX Technologies, Inc.

NFS manufactures nuclear fuel for the U.S. Navy’s fleet of nuclear-powered aircraft carriers and submarines. Nuclear fuel manufactured by NFS has an operational lifespan of more than 30 years. NFS processes HEU in a highly secure (Category 1) facility, which is licensed by the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC).

Downblending technology pioneered by NFS offers a major alternative to the disposal or storage of Cold War-era nuclear material intended for weapons. NFS is capable of downblending off-specification highly enriched uranium material. By converting uranium materials into useful fuel to generate electricity, NFS eliminates a threat to national security while powering the future of clean energy for American consumers and businesses.
